The Cora Maas Award is presented for the best evaluated course at the ECPR Summer
School in Methods and Techniques and is endowed with €500 and is awarded annually.
Cora Maas, who sadly died in February 2010, was a most outstanding pedagogue. She
taught the ‘multilevel analysis’ course at the ECPR Summer School in Methods and
Techniques in 2007 and 2008, before her health forced her to stop teaching such
intensive courses. She was a great inspiration for the junior researchers who followed
her courses and in memory of this the ECPR have dedicated an award in her name to
encourage junior researchers to aim for excellence in both methodology and pedagogy.
Prize winners are determined by the outcome of the evaluation survey each year after
